Hand-sculpted figurative art made out of a single sheet of bronze or steel mesh.
A ’Begbie sculpture’ is never moulded – a unique semi-transparent artwork with its own character.
Each wire sculpture is modelled using very own (self-made) tools and ’fixed’ joining each wire intersection, so that the artwork is robust and stable.

My earlier sculptures are raw and expressive and intensely aggressive. They are created by searching deep into the fabric of the medium modelling and exploring its character – pushing the material to its limits.

Most of my sculptures are made from a single rectangle of wiremesh with nothing added and nothing taken away. The material is simply transformed.
